Conflict in the East European Borderlands, 1870-1992

Alexander V. Prusin

Zones of Violence

  • Investigates the causes and dynamics of conflict in the "borderlands" of Eastern Europe
  • Covers the area now taken in by the Baltic states, western Byelorussia and Ukraine, and Moldova
  • Synthesizes narrower national histories to illuminate the common dynamics feeding violence throughout the borderlands region
  • Takes the long view from the late nineteenth century up to the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s
  • Shows how the ethno-cultural diversity of the region came into fundamental conflict with the policies of the various ruling authorities, be they imperial or national
